I have to say, I LOVE getting mail, and getting creative invites like the ones that have popped through our letter box recently, truly makes my day!
Today, I wanted to share Claire & Adam‘s invite with you which I have to say is totally “them” and tells their story in… 101 fonts. We’ve only had the opportunity to hang out with these guys for a couple of hours so far, but even in that short time, we can hear Adam’s voice come through the words, and I can recall Claire telling me snippets of this story. This is going to be one fun wedding!

Adam and Claire met in Bristol.
At University… no not the clever one.
Love blossomed one rainy night under an umbrella.
A: Orate duck?
C: You Whaaat?
Adam dithered. Claire was suspicious of northerners but eventually agreed to go on a date:
It worked… kind of. Claire took her flatmate with her.
But things went well = less dithering, less suspicion.
She began to like his weird friends and bad (very bad) dancing at Steam Rock nightclub.
He learned to love frozen vegetables with Chicken Tonight and Eddie Izzard’s back catalogue.
Due to differing levels of studiousness, Claire finished Uni first.
Long distance relationship – sucks.
Bristol to London (via First Great Western)
Adam eventually found campus and graduated –
Catch 22: where will the couple reunite?
Stoke (no jobs, no prospects) vs London (jobs but no oatcakes)
Adam decided to leave his beloved Stoke for a peerage at the House of Lords with Baroness Little.
The time soon came to – live in a shoe box, purchase crockery, become Margo & Jerry
Another 5 years passed sharing soggy trips to Glastonbury and exposing limited DIY ability (Help Mr Little, help!)
After a decade together, a question kept popping up: When will you guys get married?
A: Nah, I don’t know, ummmm….
Cue long convoluted tale about a free work trip to Paris;
before an actual trip to Brent Cross to catch the Easybus to Luton (romantic trip to Berlin did follow!)
Pop the question. Yes the answer.
Now delighted th big day is here…
And WE get to capture it.
Sheesh, we’re lucky.
Thanks guys for the invite and letting us share the story.
Can’t wait to see you again in all your finery.
